She originated the role of Grizabella in the French production of Cats. Her one-woman show, If I Were Me…, was voted #2 On The Fringe at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Marshall’s first show about Édith Piaf (of whom she is considered a foremost interpreter), La Vie l’Amour, played successful engagements at The Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival, Dayton’s Victory Theater and The Missouri Rep. Marshall’s Fringe show, and runs in The Baker’s Wife at Goodspeed, The Papermill Playhouse and The York Theatre led her back to New York, where she re-captured the attention of New York audiences with her performance in the Zipper Theater’s revival of Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris. Gay has two additional solo CDs, Go Back Where You Stayed Last Night, an Ethel Waters inspired selection of 20’s 30’s New Orleans style blues and jazz tunes, and Gay Marshall sings Piaf La Vie L’Amour, which hit the Billboard Top World Album chart as a #12 Hot Shot debut. Marshall has starred in “Night of A Thousand Judys,” “Piaf: A Centennial Celebration at Town Hall,” “It Was a Very Good Year” at Carnegie Hall, and “Edith Piaf: An All Star Celebration” at Feinstein's/54 Below. Her shows, Gay Marshall Sings Piaf La Vie L’Amour and Gay’s Paree have enjoyed overwhelming critical success in NYC clubs. #BistroAwardWinner #LeonardCohen #SharonRobinson #ManonWire #BillboardTopWorldArtist #Grizabella #Cats #EdinburghFringe #MoliereAwards #EdithPiaf
